I provide therapy for children, families and individuals. My approach is ecletcic, playful, creative and fun. I practice from a Social Work perspective, taking into account all of the relationships, stressors, strengths and support a person has surrounding them. I utilize an individualized, trauma-informed approach, using a combination of the following techniques, depending on each person's needs.

When working with children, parents are always involved in the process. This may include some or all of the following: participating in sessions; attending parent check-in meetings; therapeutic homework or at-home play sessions.

Getting to know ourself (and our children) on a deeper level will strengthen relationships.
Adult clients may choose to pursue more traditional methods of talk therapy, or utilize the expressive arts to get in touch with feelings, inspiration and muses.
This journey is a partnership, between willing parents and kids (or adults) and myself. A partnership where safety, honesty and open communication is valued and honored. Collaborative sharing of information will empower parents to parent in a new, confident and effective manner. Please contact me using the form on the CONTACT page. I look forward to hearing from you.
